1. When you have a substitute, you could use a podcast (which you have pre-prepared) to teach information. Although this isn't as effective as a lesson, some form of regular teach-student interaction will be helpful for students when their teacher is gone. (Teacher Generated)
2. Students could use podcasting for inter-class projects. It would be informative for students in different classes to interact with each other through podcasts for various lessons/activities (Student Generated)
3. Have students do pod-casting for oral presentations. As a new way for students to present information, they could do podcasts, which would help those who are afraid of presenting in front of a class. (Student Generated)
4. Student can listen to pod-casts from other schools to learn about subjects they are learning in class. This is another form of interaction with other classes. Students can interact with students from other schools on the same material. (Student Generated)
5. Students can do podcasts to send information home to their parents. Parents love to see feedback so this is a new way for students to bring what they have learned home. (Student Generated)
6. At the end of each unit, students should be told they will be presenting podcasts, so that they know they have to prepare the information in order to teach it. (Student Generated)
